Mr GOODENOUGH (Moore) (13:51): I rise to pay tribute to the extraordinary life of Joanna Christina Cash, who passed away on 20 November. I extend my sincere condolences to her parents, George and Ursula; her sisters, Michaelia and Melinda; her brother, Andrew; and her extended family and friends. A crowd of more than 200 people gathered at Karrakatta cemetery in Perth for her funeral last Friday. It was a moving service which celebrated Joanna's bright, vivacious nature and contagious love for life.

The youngest of four siblings, Joanna was born on New Year's Day 1982. Her career as a make-up artist saw her develop her talents on the production sets of a number of popular Australian television dramas and international movies. She will always be remembered for her caring, gentle and kind nature. Joanna can be described as an extraordinary Australian who lived life to the fullest. She travelled the world, seized all of life's opportunities and always made the most of her situation. Her positive disposition remains an inspiration to others. Even when faced with illness, she carried on working and enjoying life's experiences. On behalf of the parliament, I pay tribute to Joanna Cash and her well-lived life.
